FLORIDA PRESBYTERIAN COLLEGE 



ST PETERSBURG, FLORIDA 



Florida Presbyterian College received full 
accreditation from the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools in November, 1966. This 
was the earliest possible date the institution was 
eligible to receive accreditation and stands as a 
tribute to Florida Presbyterian's acadejnic pro- 
gram and the faculty, staff and students who 
developed that program. 

The excellence of its academic standards was 
also recognized by the Association of American 
Colleges in March, 1967 when it elected the 
College to full membership. Just two years 
earlier Florida Presbyterian College had been 
elected to associate membership, the first time 
in history a nonaccredited college Iiad been 
so honored. 

Florida Presbyterian College is independent 
and church related. Its enrollment is open to 
qualified men aiid women of all faiths— and more 
than a score of denominations are represented in 
the student body. The administration, faculty 
and students comprise a Liberal Arts community 
dedicated to the study of our changing world. 

This is the purpose of Florida Presbyterian 
College: To impart to her students, against a 
background of Christian faith, a knowledge of 
men, the universe in which they live, the rela- 
tionship between the two, and the relationship 
of both to the Creator.

PRESBYTERIAN 

COLLEGE 

A Four Year, Coeducational. 
Liberal Arts College 




Freedom of 
Understanding 



This is a new age. No other group of college 
students has faced a future so bright with promise 
and opportunity and so challenging to man's in- 
tellectual and moral nature as the present gen- 
eration. This catalogue, which presents the aims, 
ways, and means of Florida Presbyterian College, 
is designed to tell of a way of life in which 
college-aged yotith may prepare themselves 
excellently for their dynamic futures. 

Students as scholars are concerned with truth: 
its understanding, presentation, augmentation, 
critical analysis, and transmission. Our age is 
witnessing not only an explosion of population 
but an explosion of knowledge. Florida Presby- 
terian College offers its students unlimited 
opportunity to confront truth through a library 
of carefully selected volumes, fully equipped 
science and language laboratories, an exciting 
curricuhnn that emphasizes interdisciplinary ancl 
independent studies, and, most important, an 
exceptionally well-qualified faculty. Florida 
Presbyterian College's way of life is a searching 
experience, leading the student from the 
limitations of a little knowledge to the limitless 
freedom of understanding. 

Students, as Americans, are free people; and 
only among free people can the learning process 
go on. In such an atmosphere there is no sin in 
having a new idea and no safety in giving simply 
lip service to an old idea. Education is a refining 
process through which the mind and spirit are 
at one and the same time liberated and captured. 




The way of life of Florida Presbyterian College 
is an experience of growth leading the student 
from the confusions of youth to the commitments 
of maturity. 

Man is more than body and mind. "The 
heart, too, must be fed." A college student's 
understanding of triuh must be complete. God 
cannot be "the forgotten factor" in man's search. 
He made man free. Our use of freedom in our 
search for truth must be related to an awareness 
of God and a concern for the good. The way of 
life of Florida Presbyterian College is a "becom- 
ing" experience, leading the student through 
questions and debates to bring adequate moral 
judgments to the issues of life. 

I invite young people, their parents, coun- 
selors, and our friends to consider sincerely the 
program illustrated herein and welcome any 
qualified student to life in our community. 

William H. Kadel

TO' Opeii : Htirizons: 



Liberal arts, so called because their study 
liberates men and fits them for a place in a free 
society, means opened horizons. The central 
concern of Florida Presbyterian College is to 
lead her students to deeper insight, comprehen- 
sion, and understanding of men, of our universe, 
and of the relations between the two. Through 
superior students, experimentation and Christian 
community, Florida Presbyterian College plants 
in her students a desire for knowledge and a love 
of wisdom and invites them to the satisfactions 
which the persistent pursuit of such ideals may 
afford. 



Outstanding Students 



Florida Presbyterian College actively seeks 
outstanding students. Trusting that our leaders 
tomorrow are the better students of today, 
Florida Presbyterian College trains them to be 
good leaders and to seek and to assume leader- 
ship. Certain kinds of curriculum and methods 
of teaching are possible and appropriate only 
with outstanding students. While Florida 
Presbyterian College has few rigid entrance 
requirements, it expects of her prospective 
students considerable attainment in academic 
subjects. In addition to scholarly achievement, 
students should display unusual breadth of inter- 
est and excellence of character conducive to the 
orderly transition from secondary school to 
college. Young men and women must be eager 
to learn to grow physically, intellectually, and 
spiritually. Above all, they must be ready to 
accept much of the responsibility for their own 
learning. Student enrollment reached 978 in 
1967. The freshman class of 1966-67 had students 
from 27 states and five foreign countries. 



Living Research 



Florida Presbyterian College exists to prove 
to the world that the minimum or average need 
not be the norm in education (or thinking) and 
to test the proposition that education can be 
both liberal and Christian. It adopts experi- 
mental attitudes in attempting to reach its goals 
through unique but carefully considered means. 

We are engaged in living research in higher 

education, not merely in developing something 
we already have. The general direction of our 
research is to discover how students can most 
skillfully learn to make evaluations. Description 
and analysis are not sufficient, we believe, for 
moral education. They cannot be dispensed 
with; they are necessary in the search for truth. 
But the search for truth cannot stop with them. 
Truth requires judgment and choice based upon 
moral presuppositions. The formulations of 
standards of judgment as a conscious intellectual 



activity and the habitual judgment of such 
standards are an indispensable part of education. 
We do not presume that Florida Presbyterian 
College is the first college to assume the necessity 
of a moral end of education, but we are experi- 
mental in trying to find out how best such an 
end can be realized. 



Motivation 



Florida Presbyterian College thus has a deep 
concern for its students. It seeks to stimulate 
growth — the student's realization of individual 
potential — and encourages individual attain- 
ment. With the fundamental aim of the College 
community to make students aware of the serious- 
ness of their vocation, students, throughout their 
undergraduate careers, exercise their powers of 
decision on the basis of informed and thoughtful 
judgment consciously pursued. 





A Christian Community 

In still another way we are probably more 
experimental than in any other: we are trying 
to find out what a Christian College is! Those 
who have studied the idea longest and hardest 
agree that people in general have no clear-cut 
idea of what a Christian college is or should be 
and that disagreement is to be expected. Still 
we are all united in believing that there should 
be a college in which the presuppositions are 
avowedly Christian. 

Truth, freedom and Christianity have inevit- 
able connections whether in the search, the 
heritage or the government of a Christian college. 
And we have a vision of a Christian community 
which is not monastic in separating dedicated 
persons from the world but which prepares 
dedicated people to go into the world and witness 
through the exercise of their intellect. This 



witness, we pray, will prove to. the world that a 
Christian education best fits people for life, 
liberty and the pursuit of happiness for others. 

A private, accredited, coeducational, liberal 
arts college, founded and maintained by the 
Presbyterian Churches, both U.S. and U.P.U.S.A., 
Florida Presbyterian College acknowledges as 
primary in the search for truth a knowledge of 
God and of ourselves as revealed in Jesus Christ. 
The College examines and nurtures beliefs and 
recognizes faith as a probing and vitalizing force. 

Dedicated to the inspiration of a strong sense 
of Christian obligation for involvement and 
leadership in local and global events, the College 
is equally dedicated to the proposition that its 
doors are open to qualified students of all faiths. 




Prospective students, regardless of major field 
of study and plans beyond the undergraduate 
years, will find in Florida Presbyterian College 
educational experiences basic to lasting satisfac- 
tion, personal integration and social usefulness. 
The program of liberal arts, complete in itself, 
is eminently practical, regardless of a student's 
intended vocation or avocation. In addition, the 
College provides specific pre-professional train- 
ing for the ministry, medicine, law, education, 
business and graduate work in specialized fields. 

Florida Presbyterian College aims to provide 
life-long attitudes of always seeking deeper, fuller 
comprehension, of always seeking the whole view, 
and of always following courses of action to ex- 
tend capabilities and responsibilities for personal 
and community betterment. 



Learning is Personal 



Florida Presbyterian College is a unified 
academic community in which each member's 
recognition and security depend on his freedom 
to pursue scholarship and to associate with others. 
Here learning is personal and widely varied 
because of the realization that knowledge comes 
from others of differing as well as similar back- 
grounds and pursuits. We employ both conven- 
tional and unconventional methods in the search 
for truth to provide insights and skills which 
train and excite our students' intellects and 
emotions for creative and imaginative expression. 



In guiding our students' development, we 
afford them innumerable opportunities to learn 
emotional independence, the necessity for indi- 
vidual questioning, and the right and duty of 
personal judgment. Thus, Florida Presbyterian 
College cherishes freedom of thought. For its 
entire academic community — students, faculty, 
staff — the College insists upon respect for human 
dignity and individual moral responsibility sup- 
ported by the belief that humanity was created 
for one great co-operation. Thus the College 
confronts students with the conflicts of cultures, 
affording them an opportunity to intensify their 
own search for meaningful and applicable values. 
Students learn to arrive at new and broader un- 
derstandings of themselves and their studies in 
relation to culture, creation and the ultimate. 




A Fresh Start 



Founded in the tradition of the great American 
liberal arts schools, Florida Presbyterian College 
has been singularly blessed from its beginning. 
The founders, trustees, staff and faculty have 
together pursued a policy of experimentation. 
This policy has been not to cast out what has 
proved successful in education of the highest 
quality, but rather with a fresh start to develop 
and adopt new approaches, programs, facilities 
and procedures. Already the curriculum and the 
campus, planned by architects and educators, 
have captured national attention and enthusiasm 
among those concerned with meeting the vastly 
increasing demands for higher education in the 
United States for superior students. 

To carry out a college program of the first 
order efficiently and at a minimum cost, students 
themselves undertake independent learning 
during their four years. The program generates 
independence of thinking and study to produce 
fuller understanding, to inspire personal initia- 



tive and to develop acceptance of responsibility. 
The entire program emphasizes independent 
study, under faculty guidance and review, and 
elicits and maintains individual responsibility 
through specific means. 



Core Courses 

To promote a community of learners and to 
demonstrate the interrelatedness of knowledge, 
Florida Presbyterian College asks every student 
to take at least one course which all students in 
his year are taking. These are the Core courses 
taught co-operatively by professors of all aca- 
demic disciplines of the college. In these, stu- 
dents pursue with the group and on their own a 
critical understanding of the major attempts of 
man to interpret his purpose and to organize his 
experience through the analytic and historic 
study of works and institutions. 




Independent Study 

Proficiency rather than fulfillment of course 
requirements is the measure of accomplishment 
and admission to advanced studies. Thus per- 
formance (e.g., on placement tests) rather than 
credit previously earned admits students to 
advanced work in the Core courses, languages, 
sciences and mathematics and determines 
progress toward a degree. In many areas, students 
can work independently, preparing themselves 
for advanced standing, doing research and writ- 
ing papers, and receive recognition for their 
work without attending lectures and classes. 
Hence a student may accelerate his education 
during the school year and the summer months 
at home according to his capabilities and secure 
the full recognition for work done independently 
which normally is certified by course credits. 



Studies Abroad 

To increase in our students an appreciation 
of their own country's values as well as a sense 
of world community, Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege arranges a variety of study abroad oppor- 
tunities. During Winter Term there are group 
studies, and in approved instances students may 
travel independently to work on self-directed 
projects planned in cooperation with a sponsor- 
ing faculty member. As a member of the Asso- 
ciated Mid-Florida Colleges, Florida Presbyterian 
College invites its students to participate in a 
year-abroad program in France, Germany or 



Spain. The College also sponsors Summer Insti- 
tutes abroad centered in England, Germany, the 
Near East, Africa, India, Hong Kong, Japan, 
Jamaica and Mexico. The Summer Institutes 
and the year-abroad program are planned with 
the cooperation of institutions abroad, and 
appropriate credit is awarded by Florida Pres- 
byterian College upon satisfactory completion 
of academic requirements. 



Size of Classes 



Florida Presbyterian College has few middle- 
sized classes. They are either large enough to 
encourage independent work and the exchange 
of ideas within the whole community or small 
enough to permit discussions in which learners 
(that is, both teacher and students) explore, 
debate and form conclusions together. Both 
large and small groups place increasing responsi- 
bility on the student and give him two different 
kinds of experience in learning. The large course 
contributes to the idea of community by assem- 
bling all students of a given year for lectures, 
panels, demonstrations, movies and concerts and 
by providing small groups where students test 
their personal reactions against those of their 
fellows in a free forum. The ratio of faculty to 
students is approximately 1:15. Student enroll- 
ment reached 978 in 1967. 




10 





Winter Term 



The Winter Term is a special four-week 
period of independent study for all undergrad- 
uates. It comes between the fall semester, which 
begins early in September, and the spring semes- 
ter, which begins early in February. With 
examinations for the fall semester over before 
the Christmas holidays, January is free for in- 
tensive study. 

Designed to develop the quahties of self- 
discipline in pursuits requiring the student to 
be the prime explorer, the Winter Term asks 
him to work without the customary routine of 
classroom and lecture hall on a single problem 
growing out of his other studies and to present 
his findings in final form. With guidance he 
chooses and limits his subject, gathers material, 
organizes it and presents it as a paper, a short 
story, a painting, a piece of laboratory apparatus. 



During this special semester, each professor 
directs the activities of about fifteen students. 
A student selects a professor to work under; 
sometimes the group works co-operatively on 
topics or problems announced in advance, and 
sometimes they work separately. Throughout the 
four weeks, the professor is available for con- 
sultation and guidance. 

This intensive, independent study supple- 
ments the extensive work of the courses and thus 
affords unusual opportunity for the student 
during each of his four years to engage in 
extended, creative work not normally afforded in 
traditional undergraduate curriculums. Through 
the Winter Term at Florida Presbyterian College, 
the student not only works on his own to master 
a limited subject but may have the benefit of 
step-by-step evaluation of his work. 

Some of these projects are conducted in 
foreign countries. 



11 




Primate Laboratory 



Senior Seminar 



Some of the most unusual research being 
conducted anywhere in the world is being carried 
out in the primate laboratory of Florida Presby- 
terian College. 

There 28 rhesus monkeys are being tested 
under the direction of Dr. Wilhelm F. Anger- 
meier, professor of psychology, in a project 
sponsored by the Aeromedical Research Labora- 
tory, Holloman AFB, New Mexico. 

Reactions of monkeys and of human sub- 
jects to situational stimuli are being measured 
and analyzed through experiments to deter- 
mine adaptability to known and unknown 
environments. 



During his senior year, every student takes 
a seminar in his major field. Upon recommenda- 
tion of their major professors, seniors may elect 
to pursue an independent program of study and 
research in addition to or in lieu of the senior 
seminar. They present the results of their work 
in thesis. Ordinarily, thesis research begins in 
the first semester of the senior year and extends 
throughout the second semester. A student may 
begin thesis work in the junior year. 



12 



The Writing Laboratory 

Since academic success depends in great 
measure upon the written word, Florida Pres- 
byterian College emphasizes a high degree of 
proficiency in writing, both in the selection of 
its students and in determining their progress. 
The College looks for students who do not re- 
quire training in writing in a formal course of 
composition. It makes heavy demands upon 
them in their writing. Students learn to expect 
criticism from all their professors on their written 
work and help in planning papers and achieving 
effective style. In addition some staff members 
are available to help students overcome indi- 
vidual weaknesses. The writing laboratory 
enables students to form efficient procedures by 
providing a workshop for writing with a faculty 
consultant and appropriate reference books. 



The Language Laboratory 

A primary objective of studying a modem 
foreign language is learning to speak and under- 
stand it and the culture it conveys. The language 
laboratory facilitates this aspect of learning 
through aural-oral practice that the conventional 
classroom does not provide. The laboratory at 
Florida Presbyterian College operates thirty-five 
positions by remote control so that the student 
can work independently or as a member of a 
class. By merely dialing an appropriate number, 
the student can hear an instructional tape, record 
his own responses, and play it back for compar- 
ison and corrections. As many as a hundred 
different programs are available to the student at 
any time. Languages offered are Chinese, French, 
German, Russian, Spanish, Latin and Greek. 







The Reading Laboratory 





The College Reading Laboratory is well 
equipped, containing rate pacers, controlled 
readers and a library of reading texts. This 
laboratory provides both group work and atten- 
tion to individual needs. With some suggestions 
and guidance from the instructor, the student 
works as independently as possible. A profi- 
ciency test is administered to all freshmen and 
transfer students. On the basis of this and other 
tests they learn whether they should work on 
special reading skills, or whether, though their 
reading is above average, they can profit by 
increasing their rate. Throughout their four 
years students can receive help in achieving 
efficient reading rates necessary to enable them 
to master the heavy reading assignments of our 
program. 



The Science Laboratories 



A student in the natural sciences has oppor- 
tunity to undertake laboratory practice and 
research. Manual exercises and routine experi- 
ments (which are not experiments at all but 
repetitions) are minimized. Emphasis is rather 
on the student's acquiring the ability to under- 
stand theory and experimentation, exploring the 
appropriateness of methods and evaluating 
design and techniques. The small laboratory 
becomes the place for group discussion and 
provides occasion for exchange of ideas and pro- 
cedures among students. 

Natural and man-made laboratories combine 
to provide varied off-campus scientific study in 
the College's immediate area. The climate allows 
year-round field work in natural laboratories 
such as lakes, bays and land-area communities, 
and students can apply their knowledge of chem- 
istry, physics, and biology to aquatic environ- 
ments under a continuing research program. 
There is also a high concentration of excellently 
staffed laboratories concerned with electronics, 
nuclear physics and chemistry in many private 
and governmental research facilities in the area.

William Luther Cobb Library 

Because the liberal arts college must be a 
reading college, the library is the center of the 
academic program. With our emphasis upon 
independent work, the library, gift of Mr. and 
Mrs. William Luther Cobb of Tarpon Springs, 
Florida, is the primary instrument in the educa- 
tional process, the storehouse of the information, 
opinions and techniques necessary to a liberal 
education. Through open shelves and collections 
maintained in each dormitory, students have 
easy access to many books. The library not only 
supplies materials for reference, required reading 
and research papers but also compiles bibliogra- 
phies, prepares exhibits and promotes interest 
in reading. 

The initial ten-year goal of the William 
Luther Cobb Library is 100,000 volumes. At 
present there are 72,000 catalogued volumes on 
the shelves. 

Cooperative Programs 

Florida Presbyterian College participates with 
other institutions in three cooperative programs. 
These are: 

1) Summer Institutes Abroad. Florida Pres- 
byterian College cooperates with Austin 
College, Davidson College, Florida State 
University, and St. Andrews College in 
sponsoring summer institutes abroad. The 
study programs of these institutes are cen- 
tered in England, Germany, the Near 
East, Africa, India, Hong Kong, Japan, 
Jamaica and Mexico. These institutes are 
planned with the cooperation of institu- 
tions abroad and appropriate credit is 
awarded by Florida Presbyterian College 
upon satisfactory completion of academic 
requirements. 

2) Junior Year Abroad. As a member of the 
Associated Mid-Florida Colleges, Florida 
Presbyterian College cooperates in spon- 
soring a year of studies abroad for college 
Juniors. Centers of study have been estab- 
lished at the University of Madrid, the 
University of Freiburg, and the University 
of Strasbourg. At these universities, year- 
abroad students take part in the academic 
program of the university in the language 
of the university. Appropriate academic 
credit is awarded by the home institution. 

3) Mound Park Hospital Program. Students 
who have completed a regular course of 
study for three years at Florida Presby- 



terian College may, in the fourth year, 
attend the School of Medical Technology 
at Mound Park Hospital in St. Petersburg. 
After successful completion of the 52 week 
Mound Park program, such students re- 
ceive a Bachelor of Science degree from 
the College and certification from the 
Board of Registry of Medical Technolo- 
gists of the American Society of Chemical 
Pathologists. 

The Studios 

The practice of art and music flourishes 
in the studios of Florida Presbyterian College. 
Here students may receive professional guidance 
individually or in groups of various sizes, or 
they may pursue independently the mastery of 
techniques. In the art studio a student works 
in many media. In the music studio he may 
study voice or the instrument of his choice. As 
a result of their studio work, students periodically 
offer exhibits of their paintings, prints and 
sculptures and present recitals to the College 
community and friends. In its emphasis upon 
the activities of the studios, the College encour- 
ages its students' personal involvement with the 
materials of the creative and performing arts.

The Campus 




16 



and Campus Life 



Florida Presbyterian College provides a resi- 
dential student life. Most of its undergraduates 
live on the breeze-swept, bay front campus in 
air conditioned buildings. 

The young men and women in residence 
learn from their friends and associates as well 
as their professors. They acquire understanding, 
leadership and tolerance and they practice free, 
democratic choice of action. Non-resident stu- 
dents are invited to participate in all campus 
functions. 

They are part of a liberal arts, academic 
community which occupies 55 buildings on 281 
acres studded with palm, pine and live oak trees 
on the east shore of Boca Ciega Bay off the Gulf 
of Mexico. A mile to the south is the entrance 
to the famous Sunshine Skyway crossing the 
mouth of Tampa Bay. 

The grounds and buildings were valued at 
approximately $12,000,000 in 1967. Expendi- 
tures totaling $25,000,000 by the end of the next 
decade are charted. 

Present buildings include seven dormitory 
complexes capable of housing 968 students and 
four resident counselors. 

The community center of the campus is the 
College Union; it serves all members of the 
College— students, faculty, alumni and guests. It 
includes a ballroom, bowling lanes, snack bar, 
billiard room and offices for student publica- 
tions. More than a group of buildings, the 
College Union is an organization and a program. 
It is the hub from which evolves the social life 
of the campus. All students automatically receive 
membership in the College Union. 

Among the buildings comprising the College 
Union are Fox Hall and Brown Hall. Fox Hall 
was named in honor of the late Rev. Dr. Francis 
Morton Fox by Mrs. Francis Fox. Brown Hall 
was named in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert 
Benton Brown whose daughter, Mrs. Sarah 
Louise Halmi, is a member of the College's 
Board of Trustees. 

The intellectual center of the College is the 
William Luther Cobb Library, gift of Mr. and 
Mrs. Cobb of Tarpon Springs, Fla. It already 
contains 72,000 of the 100,000 volumes for which 
it is designed. 

The Dendy-McNair Teaching Auditorium 
and the F. Page Seibert Humanities Building are 
units of the Humanities Complex. The former, 




donated by First Presbyterian Church of Or- 
lando, is named for two former ministers of that 
church; the latter was named for a Daytona 
Beach philanthropist. The Forrer Language 
Center, including a modern teaching laboratory, 
is the gift of Dr. and Mrs. Samuel F. Forrer of 
Lakeland. 

The Helen and Cecil Webb Health Center, 
a gift of Mr. and Mrs. Webb of Tampa, provides 
office and equipment for medical care for the 
College community. The administration build- 
ing is named for its donors, Mr. and Mrs. 
William W. Upham of St. Petersburg Beach. 

The Science Complex has three wings— a 
teaching atiditorium, a biology laboratory build- 
ing and a chemistry and physics laboratory 
building. 

The Robert W. and Helen Roberts Music 
Center, named in honor of Mrs. Roberts of St. 
Petersburg and her late husband, provides a 
modern facility for the study and practice of 
music. 

Completion of the Bininger Center for Per- 
forming Arts and the Ben Hill Griffin Chapel 
is expected in 1968. 

Athletic facilities include an AAU swimming 
pool, baseball diamond, tennis courts and prac- 
tice golf links. Students are encouraged to use 
these facilities.

The Curriculum 



The College accepts and endorses the policy 
general in American education that a liberal 
arts program includes studies in the three 
principal divisions. Yet it does not accept the 
standard procedure of prescribing a certain num- 
ber of courses in other than the major depart- 
ments because it tends to an accumulation of 
courses not in any deep sense relevant to the 
intelligent development of the particular student 
or to his major course of study. Accordingly, it 
has established a policy of making the course of 
study unified for individual development and 
interests. The College does not specify attention 
to other fields as a given number of courses, but 
rather as a plan involving a student's unique 
experiences of programmed special readings con- 
nected with his main interest, of independent 
study, or of other devices. The principle opera- 
tive in each case is that the plan of study be 
coherent and orderly and not defined as formal 
course credits. 

In the formulation of the curriculum at 
Florida Presbyterian College consideration is 
given to major problems and developments in 
higher education. Specifically, these are (1) inter- 
disciplinary study, (2) pre-professional study, 

(3) independent study, (4) qualitative assess- 
ment, (5) international dimensions of study, and 

(6) the role of basic values in curriculum defini- 
tion. These are elaborated in a basic four year 
program. Students working with their advisers 
build on this basic curriculum adding to it and 
adapting it to their abilities and needs. The 
inter-disciplinary Core course provides a four- 
year liberalizing experience which makes learn- 
ing an involvement and enduring experience. 

The Winter Term exposes every student to 
independent study affording opportunity for 
individual pursuits. In addition individual pro- 
ficiencies give students scope and choice in: 



a. Courses in the Major. The several fields 
of major study stipulate various require- 
ments (see Course of Instruction pp. 42). 
It should be noted that students may begin 
work in their major field as freshmen. 

Majors are offered in: 

Humanities— Art, Languages, Literature, 
Music, Philosophy, Religion; 

History and the Social Sciences— Econom- 
ics and Business Administration, His- 
tory, Political Science, Psychology, Soci- 
ology and Anthropology; 

Mathematics and the natural Sciences- 
Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, 
Physics. 

East Asian Area Studies. 

Students may pursue a divisional or inter- 
divisional major consisting of ten or more 
courses of which six will represent concentration 
in one discipline with the additional courses 
related to this major. 

b. Language. Students must demonstrate 
competence in speaking, reading and writ- 
ing a foreign language and be familiar 
with the culture of a country to which 
the language is native. Competence some- 
times is achieved through two college years 
of study following two years of high school 
study in the same language. 

c. Mathematics and logic. Students take 
whatever mathematics they are ready for, 
or logic, in either the freshman or sopho- 
more year. 

d. Other Courses. The curriculum also pro- 
vides specific preparation courses for 
graduate work in specialized fields, in- 
cluding la^v, medicine and the ministry. 
It also offers a program leading to certi- 
fication to teach at the secondary level in 
most areas in which the College offers a 
major. The student interested in certifica- 
tion should apply to the Teacher Educa- 
tion Advisory Committee no later than 
the first semester of the Junior year. The 
intei~nship is done in the local Pinellas 
County schools.

Grades and Their Meaning 

The evaluation of academic progress at 
Florida Presbyterian College rests on a student's 
response to educational opportunity rather than 
on the fulfillment of an arbitrary set of course 
requirements. Our standards emphasize quality 
rather than quantity, and our rewards and 
awards are for outstanding and creative work. 
To emphasize the greater importance of intel- 
lectual achievement than of grades, Florida 
Presbyterian College uses grades only for ad- 
visory purposes and for the transfer of credit 
to other institutions. In advising students, we 
use the grades of H (honors), S (satisfactory) 
and U (unsatisfactory). 



Honor System 



Student government is an important part of 
campus life at the College. Collective action by 
undergraduates in self-government is vital to 
the College program. Basic thereto is the Honor 
System, enforced by the students themselves. All 
student activity, academic and social, presup- 
poses it. Predicated on Christian values, in its 
practice it contributes to the development of 
emerging, mature human beings. The College 
encourages a full, satisfying and meaningful 
campus life involving all students. Students 
organize and conduct social functions, publica- 
tions, intramural sports, organizations, and 
special events like concerts.

Freshman Admission 



Admission to Florida Presbyterian College is 
based upon past academic performance in mathe- 
matics, science, literature, language and social 
studies, achievement on examinations; and per- 
sonal qualifications such as character, special 
talents, range of interest, poise, maturity and 
personal development. The ability which the 

Procedures For 
Application 

a. The candidate for admission to Florida 
Presbyterian College should initiate his appli- 
cation for admission by directing a request for 
the application form and transcript form to the 
Director of Admissions. 

b. The formal application for admission 
must be completed and returned to the Director 
of Admissions with an application fee of $10. 
(The fee is not refundable.) The applicant must 
request the proper administrative officer of the 
high school from which he is to be graduated

of Admissions of Florida Presbyterian College. 

c. Applicants must arrange to take the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test offered by the College 
Entrance Examination Board. The results of 
the tests should be submitted to the Director of 
Admissions of the College. It is recommended 
that the applicant take his Scholastic Aptitude 
Test in December of his senior year. Scores from 
the January, March, May, and July dates are 
acceptable; however, the results from the Decem- 
ber testing are preferred. Scholastic Aptitude 
Test scores from a testing in the junior year may 
be used to admit students before the December 
test results are processed. However, all applicants 
are requested to take the Scholastic Aptitude 
Test during their senior year. Florida Presby- 
terian College recommends, but does not require, 
that applicants take the following Achievement 
Tests: Mathematics I or II and English. 

Testing centers throughout the country give 
the Scholastic Aptitude Test at specified times. 
At least six weeks before the date of any of the 
tests, the candidate should apply directly to the 
College Entrance Examination Board, Box 592, 
Princeton, New Jersey. The Board sends an 
information booklet giving full details about 
testing centers and the tests available, and will

The applicant for admission to the Freshman 
class should have completed the graduation re- 
quirements and demonstrated academic com- 
petence in a high school or preparatory school 
accredited by a state or regional accrediting 
agency. Even though the academic record will 
not be judged primarily on specific units of 
work, students entering Florida Presbyterian 
College are expected to have, generally: four 
years of English, three years of mathematics, two 
years of language, one year of history and one 
year (preferably two) of science. 

NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE 

The Admissions Office of Florida Presby- 
terian College will prepare a file on each can- 
didate for admission. This compilation will 
include the original request for an application, 
transcripts from the high school or preparatory 
school, test scores, personal recommendations 
and any other pertinent data submitted by the 
applicant or gathered by the Admissions Office. 

The Admissions Committee of Florida Pres- 
byterian College meets at regtdar intervals dur- 
ing the school year. The first of the regidar 
meetings takes place in November, and if a can- 
didate for admission has completed his formal 
application, including a high school transcript 
which is complete through the junior year and 
Scholastic Aptitude Test scores, it is possible for 
the Committee to act upon the application at 



22 



that time. Acceptance by the Committee at this 
time does not mean that the candidate is obH- 
gated to attend Florida Presbyterian College. 

When an application for admission is sub- 
mitted to the Admissions Committee and action 
has been taken, the Director of Admissions will 
notify the candidate of the status of his applica- 
tion. The candidate may be accepted pending 
successful completion of his senior year, he may 
be denied admission to Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege, or he may be requested to supply additional 
information which will help the Admissions 
Committee make a final decision. Candidates 
who are for any reason in doubt about the 
status of their application should write directly 
to the Director of Admissions. 

COLLEGE VISITATION 
A visit to the Florida Presbyterian College 
campus is highly recommended. Please tele- 
phone or write to the Admissions Office for 
an appointment. 

ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM 

Courses will be honored at Florida Presby- 
terian College on the basis of scores on the 
Advanced Placement Examination administered 
by the College Entrance Examination Board. 
Scores of three, four, and five will automatically 
certify the student in the course covered by the 
examination. Scores of two will be referred to 
the staff of the appropriate discipline for recom- 
mendations concerning possible credit. No credit 
will be allowed for scores of one. 

TRANSFER ADMISSION 
A student at another college or university 
wishing to transfer to Florida Presbyterian 
College must complete the requirements for 
admission already listed, and submit a transcript 
of his college record with a catalogue and a state- 
ment from the college of his academic standing 
and personal qualifications. 

Transfer applicants who have previously 
taken the Scholastic Aptitude Test may submit 
these scores or arrange to retake this examina- 



tion. If the applicant has not taken the Scholas- 
tic Aptitude Test, he must arrange to do so. All 
applicants must submit results of the Scholastic 
Aptitude Test to the Director of Admissions of 
Florida Presbyterian College. 

The transfer of credit from other institutions 
of higher education approved by the Regional 
Accrediting Agency depends upon the corre- 
spondence of the courses to those offered at 
Florida Presbyterian College and the approval 
of the academic division concerned. Grades 
below C are not acceptable for transfer. 

SPECIAL ADMISSION 

Some students academically too advanced for 
further high school study or more than twenty- 
one years old, may have the entrance require- 
ments waived. The Admissions Committee con- 
siders such cases individually. 

CANDIDATE'S REPLY 

All candidates (including financial aid appli- 
cants) will deposit $50 with the Director of 
Admissions by May 1, if admitted prior to that 
date. Applicants admitted after May 1 will be 
expected to make this deposit within two weeks 
after acceptance. This money though not refund- 
able, is applied toward the comprehensive 
charges upon enrollment. 

A medical examination form will be sent to 
each candidate who has paid the S50 acceptance 
fee. This form should be completed and returned 
to the Director of Admissions before the due 
date which is listed at the top of the form. No 
student will be allowed to register until this 
form is completed and on file. 

ORIENTATION 

All new students, freshmen and transfers, will 
be asked to report to the campus on August 30, 
1968, for orientation. The orientation period 
offers a relaxed atmosphere for meeting with 
college staff, pre-registration, course counseling 
and placement testing. Information about the 
orientation will be mailed on July 1, 1968, to all 
applicants who have paid the $50 acceptance fee.

Costs 

A college education of high intellectual chal- 
lenge is of lasting value and, like most things of 
value, is costly. Only ignorance is more expen- 
sive. Private, non-tax supported institutions such 
as Florida Presbyterian College make every effort 
to keep the cost of education down and, as a 
result, the student pays only a portion of the 
actual expense of his education. The portions 
paid by the student are as follows: 

Annual Expenses 

Resident Students 

Comprehensive charges - $2,615 (double room) 
Comprehensive charges - 2,715 (single room) 
Non-Resident Students 

Comprehensive charges - $1,593 
These charges include cost of room and 
board, post office box, library, athletic activi- 
ties, health program, laboratory operations, 
studio facilities, accident and health insmance, 
guidance program, and state food sales tax. All 
rooms are air-conditioned during the months 
of September, October, November, March, April 
and May. The College assumes no liability for 
utility breakdown over which it has no control. 
All students living on campus are required to 
deposit $5 for room breakage and $1 for key. 

An assessment of $25 has been voted by the 
students to underwrite student-sponsored pro- 
grams, publications, and similar student func- 
tions. The Student Government Association has 
authorized the Comptroller's Office to collect 
this assessment which is in addition to the an- 
nual expenses. 

EXTRA FEES: All new students are charged an 
orientation fee of $12. Students with automobiles 
must pay a $20 annual parking fee. Music. Private 
instruction in music is approximately $210 per year 
for one hour a week and $105 per year for one-half 
hour. Graduation Fee. $15 to cover cost of diploma 
and rental of cap and gown. 
All accounts are due and payable on term 
basis September 1 and January 15. All unpaid 
accounts from a prior term must be paid before 
students will be permitted to register for the 
current term. All accounts must be paid by 
December 1 and May 1 before students will be 
permitted to take final examinations, obtain a 
transfer of credits, or be graduated. Specific 
financial information may be obtained by writ- 
ing the Comptroller. The booklet 'Tinancial 
Guidance for Students" covers, in detail, the 
financial requirements and obligations of stu- 
dents enrolled in Florida Presbyterian College. 
Guides and rules for payments are contained 
therein. 

In order to meet changing economic condi- 
tions, the Board of Trustees reserves the right 

24 



to revise charges as conditions may warrant; cur- 
rent year's charges will not be adjusted during 
the academic year. 

Financing Your Education 

Generally, half of the total comprehensive 
costs, minus acceptance fees and/or room de- 
posits, is due at entrance in September and the 
remainder by January 15. Upon matriculation, 
the student (and/or his parents) is obligated for 
comprehensive costs for the entire term. The 
college cooperates with insurance and tuition 
plan companies to make monthly installment 
payments possible when this method of payment 
of comprehensive costs more nearly fits the fam- 
ily's budget than lump suin payments. 

Aid To Students 

Financial aid is made available to students 
by the Scholarship Committee based upon finan- 
cial need, academic performance and potential. 

Financial need is determined by an evalua- 
tion of the Parents' Confidential Statement by 
the College Scholarship Service, Princeton, New 
Jersey. A student's financial aid is generally 
provided in a package form comprised of scholar- 
ship, work aid and loan. Students applying for 
financial aid are automatically considered for 
any of these various forms of aid. 

The College's financial aid program empha- 
sizes the "self-help" concept. The majority of stu- 
dents receiving financial aid will be participating 
in the work scholarship program or one of the 
college loan programs. Student loans are good 
business: a college education considerably in- 
creases earning power, most loans require little 
or no interest. Some loans may be repaid partly 
in service instead of cash. The College has 
endowed loan funds, state-guaranteed loan appli- 
cations and also participates in the National 
Defense Student Loan Program. 

To provide students with the opportunity to 
earn some of their college expenses, Florida Pres- 
byterian has created many part-time jobs on 
campus. These jobs range from work in the 
cafeteria, buildings, grounds, to faculty and staff 
offices. It is recommended that freshmen not 
undertake part-time employment off campus. To 
complete the work scholarship program, out- 
standing upperclassmen are employed as student 
instructors, assisting professors in teaching and 
research responsibilities. 

Florida Presbyterian College operates with 
the policy that every qualified student should 
be helped to work out financial problems. 
Requests for further information regarding fi- 
nancial aid should be directed to the Financial 
Aid Counselor in the Admissions Office. 






\ 







mnseling 




The development of concerned and effective 
individuals is reflected in the counseling pro- 
gram. Here the emphasis is on the individual 
student, with his needs, limitations, abilities and 
goals. Through the admissions process, much in- 
formation is obtained on the student. Added to 
it are test results and other material gained dur- 
ing the orientation program. The Counseling 
Center director selects the most appropriate 
faculty adviser, on the basis of this information, 
for each student. During the orientation pro- 
gram the adviser meets with the student and 
plans his course schedule. During the year he 
holds additional conferences to discuss matters 
important to college adjustment and success. 
Faculty advisers form an integral part of the 
counseling program and through his adviser each 
student has access to every special program and 
assistance likely to make college life meaningful 
and enjoyable. 

Each incoming student also has a freshman 
advisory council member (FAC) assigned to him. 
This person aids in the student's social and cam- 




pus adjustment— giving advice and counsel from 
one student to another. 

Professional resident counselors live within 
the women's residence complexes and are avail- 
able to help with variotis problems. Carefully 
selected upperclass male students serve as resi- 
dent advisers in the men's residence complexes. 

A counseling center is available to offer con- 
fidential professional help to students having 
vocational or personal problems. Special group 
sessions are also held on improving study tech- 
niques, major and career planning, pre-marital 
counseling and problems of transition from high 
school to college. 

A Career Advisory Office assists students in 
obtaining permanent positions after graduation. 
It arranges visits for representatives of companies 
and agencies seeking personal interviews with 
our students. In addition, the Career Advisory 
Office undertakes special activities to assist those 
graduates who seek opportunities in teaching. 

Summer employment and part-time jobs are 
also arranged for interested students.

Religious Life 



The University Christian Movement on the 
campus of Florida Presbyterian College seeks to 
create an atmosphere enabling the Christian 
faith to be the cornerstone and the central focus 
of the total academic community. To accomplish 
this purpose the UCM constantly strives to 
emphasize: 

1) the consistent, prayerful search to under- 
stand the meaning of the Christian faith; 

2) the fellowship of the total academic com- 
munity joined in common worship and in 
the search for truth; 

3) the concern for the life and mission of 
the universal church and the encourage- 
ment of responsible participation by all 
her members; 

4) the compulsion to relate prophetically 
all areas of life to the Christian faith. 

Membership in the UCM is open to all con- 
cerned students of Florida Presbyterian College. 
The UCM has the endorsement of and is sup- 
ported by the Roman Catholic Church, the 
Orthodox Church, and all major Protestant de- 



nominations. The UCM is open to all, "seek- 
ers" and "believers" alike. It seeks to develop 
a program which involves students at every 
level of interest, commitment and maturity. 

All aspects of the College's religious pro- 
gram are voluntary. The chaplain, individual 
faculty members, students ancl choir, all par- 
ticipate in daily worship services, conducted for 
the entire college community. 

Through the planning and conducting of 
services, students and faculty have the oppor- 
tunity for a better understanding of the mean- 
ing of worship. During the week, the UCM 
sponsors small study groups. Faculty members 
often conduct general discussions in the dor- 
mitories. The UCM progranr deals with cam- 
pus, community, national and international 
problems from the standpoint of Christian 
faith. Students also have an opportunity to 
take part in regional and national conferences 
and ecimienical work camps. 

The program of Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege seeks to guide the student toward an in- 
telligent and responsible Christian commitment 
in all areas of life.

Medical Services 



Students have access to college health physi- 
cians at daily scheduled clinics. Registered 
nurses are present at the health center on a 
twenty-four hour basis to assist the student in 
health needs. In addition to the out-patient 
clinic a fourteen bed in-patient service is part 
of the health center. Cases requiring more ex- 
tensive care than is available at the health center 
are admitted to Mound Park Hospital (700 
beds) in St. Petersburg. 





Summer School 

Florida Presbyterian College offers a six- 
w^eek's summer program which ordinarily in- 
cludes courses in Art, Mathematics, Science, 
Government, Literature, Reading and Compo- 
sition, Western Civilization, French, German, 
Russian and Spanish. . ; 

The summer language program provides an 
opportunity for intensive work in understand- 
ing, speaking, reading and writing. Native in- 
formants, language tables and intensive practice 
in conversation are features of this program. 

The Summer School period is also used for 
experimentation in course materials and teach- 
ing techniques. Opportunity is available in many 
disciplines for advanced independent work. Sum- 
mer School is open to all qualified undergrad- 
uates, and many courses are open to capable 
high school juniors and seniors. 

The complete recreational facilities of the 
college are available to Summer School students. 



27 



Sports For All 



In addition to the required physical educa- 
tion for freshmen and sophomores, an integral 
part of the curriculum, the College sponsors an 
extensive intramural-extramural program in 17 
different team and individual sports for both 
men and vs^omen. Nearly 80 per cent of the 
student body takes part in this program. 

Intercollegiate athletics are entirely under 
the control of the College and organized and 
administered by the Athletic Department. The 
Faculty Athletic Committee supervises all sched- 
ules. It also gives attention to the proper rela- 
tion of athletic activities to the academic ideals 
and objectives of the College. 

The Intercollegiate Athletic Program pro- 
vides valuable experience to those students who 
possess superior physical skills and desire to rep- 
resent the institution in formal competition. The 
sports included in the program are basketball, 
golf, tennis, judo, fencing, baseball, swimming, 
cross country, sailing and soccer. 

Schedules are arranged with most of the 
Florida colleges and other senior colleges 
throughout the South. The annual Suncoast 
Classic Basketball Tournament, the Awards Din- 
ner and the Spring Sports Day are a few of the 
highlights of the Sports Program. 




Teacher Education 

Florida Presbyterian College's unique pro- 
gram of professional education for secondary 
school teachers has gained distinction and re- 
ceived approval from the Department of Edu- 
cation of the State of Florida. Direct involve- 
ment in the teaching process is central to the 
program. Students are carefully screened and 
counseled. During the junior year they are 
provided with appropriate teaching responsi- 
bilities in the public schools. As seniors they 
engage in a professional semester which provides 
an intensive classroom-oriented curriculum that 
is jointly conducted by the college's edtication 
and psychology faculties together with distin- 
guished public school teachers and administra- 
tors. A teacher education laboratory is equipped 
with a curriculum library and the latest educa- 
tional media. It serves as a work room for 
student teachers and the locus for the informal 
exchange of ideas. 



28 



Concerts 

The Concert Choir, made up of some 40 
students and its popular-song singing subsidiary. 
The Sandpipers, are establishing an ever-growing 
reputation. They have sung throughout Florida 
and now are extending their tours up the At- 
lantic seaboard. Periodically, College instru- 
mentalists and singers and visiting artists give 
recitals of chamber music and solos on campus. 

The College sponsors an Artist Series. The 
1967-68 program includes the Minneapolis Sym- 
phony, the Don Cossack Dancers and Chorus, 
Gina Bachauer, Compagnie Nationale de Danses 
Francaises, the Chamber Symphony of Philadel- 
phia, and the Renaissance Quartet. 

In the city, two symphony orchestras, an opera 
group, a woodwind quintet, two concert series 
and a string quartet offer numerous programs. 




Publications 

The Trident is the student newspaper pub- 
lished weekly. Incite is a literary magazine 
appearing every semester. The annual Student 
Handbook is a publication designed for new 
students at the College. The College yearbook. 
Logos, is published annually by a student staff. 



Societies 

The Social Science Forum, open to students 
majoring or especially interested in Economics, 
History, Political Science, Psychology and Soci- 
ology or Anthropology, seeks to stimulate student 
interest in graduate work and professional oppor- 
tunities, in part through discussions of contro- 
versial and interdisciplinary materials. 

Foreign Language clubs promote understand- 
ing and appreciation of the language, literature 
and culture of the countries involved. Two 
honorary language societies— Delta Phi Alpha 
(German) and Sigma Delta Pi (Spanish)— have 
chapters on the campus. 

Science clubs include the Chemistry Club, 
the Biology Club, the Physics Club and Pi Mu 
Epsilon (honorary mathematics). 



29 



Films ■■',■--/■...■ : '^l. ' v.," 

The Student Government Association spon- 
sors a weekly film series. 

Films are chosen for plot, photography, direc- 
tion, acting, technical innovations, humor, gen- 
eral entertainment value and topical interest. 

Films in this series are supplemented by pic- 
tures shown by College departments, divisions, 
and the Core program. 




Lectures 

The Core curriculum, the academic societies, 
forums and clubs of the College bring guest 
speakers throughout the year. Certain of these 
lectures are designed to meet the need of specific 
groups; others are open to the general public. 
A Faculty Lecture Series is presented each year. 



Theatre 



The theatre program at Florida Presbyterian 
College is centered in a Theatre Workshop in 
which all students are invited to participate. 
Performances are scheduled throughout the year: 
major productions presented with full staging 
and under professional discipline; informal ex- 
periments, readings and exercises coordinated 
with the Core program and other projects. Em- 
phasis is placed upon the contemporary develop- 
ment of the theatre and upon its engagement 
with active intellectual, political, social and re- 
ligious issues. The new Bininger Center for Per- 
forming Arts will be under construction in the 
fall of 1967. It will provide complete facilities 
for rehearsal, production and performance.

Heartbeat Of A College 

In no other area was so much painstaking 
care and concern evidenced at Florida Presby- 
terian College as in the selection of its faculty 
—the heartbeat of any such institution. Regard- 
less of status or tenure, every faculty member 
finally selected combines scholarship and teach- 
ing ability to an extraordinary degree. 

The criteria, for acceptance, as set forth by 
the Board of Trustees, call for a teacher with 
depth and command in his field of specializa- 
tion and a breadth of cultural background en- 
abling him to relate his own discipline to the 



totality of experience; who demonstrates per- 
sonal and professional competence and growth 
through research, publication and professional 
participation; who inspires students with his 
respect for his profession by his ability, his char- 
acter and his conduct; who has the ability him- 
self to think creatively and objectively and to 
inspire his students to do likewise; who extends 
himself to his students in service, to his colleagues 
in co-operation and to his community in con- 
cern; and finally, whose character the students 
will want to emulate.

COURSE 
OF 

INSTRUCTION 




Course of Instruction 



Introduction 



The number of each course conveys the following information: Courses 
numbered 100 to 299 are primarily for freshmen and sophomores, 300 to 499 for 
juniors and seniors. In general, odd-numbered courses are offered in the first 
semester; even-numbered courses are offered in the second semester. 



Before students enroll in any course, they are to seek advice of their faculty 
advisers. Near the close of the school year each freshman is expected to prepare 
a tentative course program for the remaining three years of college and to present 
it to his adviser for critical evaluation and counsel. At the end of the second 
year of study each student must submit for approval to the Committee on 
Academic Review his projected program. A student may revise his program at 
any time thereafter with the approval of a major adviser. 



This catalogue lists the Core courses, which all students must take, and also 
the courses according to academic divisions and academic disciplines within 
each division. Courses are conducted typically in three lecture-discussion periods 
per week supplemented by other periods, studios, or laboratories. 



Course descriptions are not given for the Special Topics and Senior Seminars 
because a professor is free to vary his offerings each year according to student 
interest and his own study and research. Students receiving the endorsement 
of the professors in their major field may take the equivalent of two courses each 
semester during their junior and senior years in a program of guided independent 
study and research which should culminate in an acceptable senior thesis. Every 
student must pass a comprehensive examination in his major field unless he 
writes a senior thesis.

^ore Liourses 



The basic objective of the Core Program is to develop in students the com- 
petence and willingness to form and articulate responsible value judgments. 
Materials of the courses are drawn from the areas of Humanities, Natural Science 
and Social Science; and professors from all academic divisions of the college 
participate in the program. Special concern is accorded to the relevance of the 
Judaeo-Christian tradition and of religious commitment in the formation of 
judgments. Comparative studies are made of works and institutions from Asian 
and Western traditions. 

The Core Program is the common academic experience of all students 
throughout their entire residence in the college. This program, together with 
demonstrated competence in a foreign language, in reading, in mathematics or 
logic and in recreational skills, is a general college requirement. 

The Core Science phase of the Core Program is an integrated offering cover- 
ing certain basic theories of physics, chemistry and biology, normally taken in 
the Sophomore and Junior years. It is concerned with the nature of science 
and its influence on western society as well as with the facts of science. 

101, 102 Six hours are set aside each week for critical examination of works and 

institutions selected from various fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences. 
Ordinarily two or three hours are used for lectures or other presentations to the 
entire class. For two additional sessions of an hour and a half each of the students 
meet in small discussion groups for detailed examination of the doctmients under 
consideration. Discussion leaders supervise the writing program of the students 
assigned to them. 

201, 202 Three sessions are reserved each week for continuation of the work in 

Core Science Humanities and Social Science which was begtm in the Freshman year. Two 
200 additional sessions are used in presentations, laboratories and discussions of 

natural science materials. This year's program emphasizes the Newtonian syn- 
thesis, the structure of the atom and the nature of chemical change. 

301, 302 In the areas of the Humanities and Social Science special attention is focused 

Core Science on the works and institutions of Asia. In Core Science the emphasis is on the 
300 cell, biological ecosystems, physical and biological evolution and modern sys- 

tems of scientific thought. 



43 



401, 402 CHRISTIAN FAITH AND GREAT ISSUES 

Major problems in personal and social ethics receive special attention in the 
senior year. The selection of topics and of speakers is made by a joint com- 
mittee of faculty and students. Faculty lectures, group discussions and selected 
readings prepare the students for their encounters with visiting lecturers. 



Reading

The basic goal of the quality, Hberal arts 
education offered at Florida Presbyterian College ■ ' 

is to open new horizons to its students. Its • 
emphasis is on growth and individual attain- 
ment. It endeavors, in every aspect, to encourage 
creative action and the power of decision on the 
basis of informed and thoughtful judgment, 
consciously pursued. The young men and women 
who attend this college must possess an eager- 
ness to learn, a desire to grow physically, intel- 
lectually and spiritually, and have a willing- 
ness to accept much of the responsibility for 
their own learning. 

Florida Presbyterian College has a deep con- 
cern for its students and seeks in every way 
through its faculty and facilities to stimtdate 
the realization of individual potential and to 
inculcate the seriotisness of the student's voca- 
tion. In the gtiidance of student development, 
the college encourages its students, as subjects 
of the learning process, to be emotionally inde- 
pendent, to think for themselves, to exercise as 
citizens of a democratic society their right and 
diUy of personal judgment. As individuals, the 
students are challenged to have the strength to 
stand in solitary responsibility lest they become 
molded into personalities without purpose or 
identity which reflect only the wishes of others 
and who change with every new prevailing cir- 
cumstance. It plans to confront them with the 
conflicts of culture and to arouse within them 
the feelings of anxiety that shoidd intensify their 
search for meaningful and applicable values and 
aid them in evolving an understanding of them- 
selves and their studies in relation to ctdture, 
creation and the Ultimate. 

As a Christian institiuion of higher learning, - 

Florida Presbyterian College acknowledges as its ■ 

primary search "the knowledge of God and 
knowledge of ourselves as revealed in Jesus j 

Christ." It purposes to nurture the beliefs and / 

attittides that are central to the Christian inter- 
pretation of man, to employ faith as a probing

Florida Presbyterian College maintains a uni- 
fied academic community in which each mem- 
ber's recognition and security depends on the 
pursuit and attainment of scholarly interests 
and Christian relationships. Here learning is 
regarded as personal because of the realization 
that knowledge comes through others ... of 
differing as well as similar backgrounds and 
pursuits. All methods for the establishment of 
truth in every aspect of life are employed to 
provide insights and skill which train and excite 
the intellect and emotions for creative and 
imaginative expression. Freedom of thought is 
cherished, unfettered by arrogant assertions of 
opinion and pious devotion to blind tradition. 
It fosters a setting in which the respect for 
human dignity and the firmness in exercising 
moral responsibility is supported by the belief 
that humanity was created by God for one great 
cooperation.
